The other day we were at Soul Dining and not long after I’m at Soul Burger in Newtown. There must be a theme going on. In any case, I am COMPLETELY on board for the new vegetarian burgers made up of stuff like Beyond Meat, that don’t taste like the old vegetarian lentil burgers of the past.
I think that it’s good for the planet as well as our health to cut down on the meat we eat, or to cut it out entirely. So, dining with my vegetarian friend David was a good excuse to try out Soul Burger.
While I was tempted by the Pauline Hanson Halal Snack Pack, I went for the Beyond Burger, with Vegan Bacon.
As with the last time I tried a Beyond Burger (at Grill’d), I admired the smoky, grilled flavour, and found the perfect shape of the patty a little disturbing. But it tasted of meat to me, and the bacon had a surprisingly bacon like texture. All in all I thought it was perfectly fine.
David was happy with his ‘chicken’ burger and the sweet potato fries were delicious and crisp. Washed down with a lemonade and an ale, I was happy to give my business to Soul Burger.
I even got to try out the me&you app and little plastic stone thing for ordering and payment. It’s a pretty slick and easy system (I first saw it as Chat Thai in Chinatown but for some reason, I couldn’t get a connection for it to work).
